I’m Pat!

I grew up in Illinois and now live in Los Angeles with my dog, Hank.

I like volleyball, gin, science, blues harmonica, and bar trivia.

I don’t like junk mail, people who don’t pick up their dog’s poo, astrology, and Capricorns.

My favorite authors include Bill Watterson, Liane Moriarty, and David Foster Wallace.

The genres I write in vary, but I always try to include unique characters, interesting language, and a hopefully memorable reading experience.

You’ll have to tell me how I’m doing.
